Concise Writing

Thank you T-Nation for teaching me how to get my thoughts across quickly and concisely.

I used to know how to do it, but I apparently started becoming longwinded again… until I started posting here. Even the emails I write are shorter now.

I have some sort of problem with my inbox/outbox apparently. I cannot send PMs to anyone for some reason and apparently I can’t receive them anymore either.

So what’s up?

Don’t knock it 'til you try it.

Let’s get something straight: concise writing conveys content clearly and effectively and makes the reader’s job easier. See, e.g., Old Man in the Sea. The fundamentals of concise writing are not grounded in acronyms, incomplete or unpunctuated sentences, incomplete or unfinished thoughts, or the use of “smiley faces” or “LOLs.”

Carry on.
